Cremation Caskets and Containers
Cremation Casket and Container Choices
The selection of a cremation casket is just as important
as the selection of the ceremony and will complement the tribute designed for the one
being remembered. Before cremation, during the ceremony, and at the time of cremation,
the casket or container is the resting place that gives dignity to your loved one. It
may also be where you will see your loved one for the last time.
Cremation caskets are made of wood and available in a wide variety
of styles that are suitable for services with a visitation, viewing or a gathering
held prior to the cremation. The warmth, beauty and personality wood brings to fine
furniture is well suited for the construction of caskets. Depending on your selection,
cremation caskets can be personalized to fit your needs with accessories like custom
tribute panels or custom embroidered interiors.
In recent years, casket manufacturers have
addressed the need for larger-sized caskets. Available in many of the same materials,
colors, finishes and designs as in traditional-sized caskets, oversize caskets offer a
more comfortable fit for your loved one when required.
Cremation containers are made from both composite and
solid wood components and are fully combustible. These are most appropriate when a
private viewing has been scheduled.
